The Fellows Program is a two-year program that empowers low-income, first-generation college students with the tools they need to graduate college, succeed in their careers, and compete at the highest level by providing one-on-one mentorship, intensive career development, robust networks, and holistic support.

The program consists of monthly workshops focused on the essential, non-academic skills needed to attain professional internships and jobs. Learn more about our workshop curriculum here. 


  • In Year One, the program focuses on a foundation of professional skills, experiences, and networks, with a focus on identifying and securing an internship.
  • In Year Two, Fellows take their experience to the next level and develop a long-term career plan.
  • In addition to 24 Saturday Career Development workshops, Fellows also receive:
    • One-on-one mentorship and guidance
    • Internship and Transfer Support
    • Up to $1,000 in grant funding each year
